Favorite Songs 2: D.R.I. - Suit and Tie Guy
I was a pretty big fan of D.R.I. in the mid-to-late 80s, but I will be one of the first to admit that some of their songs just seem to go on for way too long. Even though Manifest Destiny clocks in shorter than this song, it's a good example of what I'm talking about. It just seems to go on forever. Suit and Tie Guy just moves along at a much better clip. I think it's the chord progression. It's a satisfying song, musically.
Lyrically, there's not much original here. It's typical 80s-era rallying against the corporate world. But it's a fun tune. Good skate punk.
